Hi guys I'm back.
I've been living on the fringes of blogging for a few weeks now, but I'm back! Been a strange few weeks, with some family problems, some health problems and work getting in the way of my blogging.
The lovely weather we have had has been dragging us out of the house a lot more than usual and we have spent many happy hours here, 5 mins from home:
The kids just don't want to leave...
Two happy boys!
I have been busy making stuff, mainly making hexies and putting kits together for sale and making candles and melts. I have been making fun stuff too, but I am in the midst of three swaps and I've got two birthday swaps in the next couple of weeks, so the things I have been making I can't really show yet, here is a little taster;
Little felty makes...
Little knitted cotton makes...
Fabric swap goodies almost complete to send to Australia...
How are you getting on with your swaps, has everyone been in touch?
I bought this last week from The Book Club,
I've always been a little scared of quilting but I was really drawn to this, it's more little projects to make than full on big quilts.
Hexie, book cover ~ eek! I have to make one of these!
A delightful cushion, this is next on my list. It's not as hard as it looks, it's only 9 different squares of fabric cut in varying ways, I've got a lovely pile of Cath Kidston cotton just screaming out for this cushion project.
And look what I found at the boot sale last week, I love old tins, and I love nursery rhymes, this was just right up my street...
Now before I shoot off to catch up on your blogs, have you bought this yet? It's the Simply Homemade magazine. I quite like it as it has lots of different crafts in there, and as my interests vary so widely there is always something in there I like.
I bought a spare copy for someone who would like to give it a go. If you would like a chance to win this please metion 'FREE MAGAZINE' in your comment and I'll add you into the hat. I'll draw a winner on Monday night and post out next week (maybe with a couple of little treats added in).
I promise not to leave it so long next time.
Mmmmmwwwahhhh! Love ya!
